I've been thinking there is a little over 8 months until my cruise, I would be thrilled to lose 40lbs by then which means I would only need to lose 5lbs a month or 1.25lbs a week. Totally doable right? That would bring me down to 145lbs which I haven't seen since middle school. WOW
As a set in the right direction I plan on restarting the couch to 5k podcast with a little modification. In the past I have found that the program moves too fast for me, the jump from running 90 seconds to 3 minutes is too much too fast so I will be working through weeks 1 and 2 more than once. I also plan on doing it every other day as opposed to 3 days a week that way I am at a more steady pace. I am thinking that I will do yoga on the days that I do not run.
Its a big change but I think I can do it. I usually give up on exercise because it makes my weight go up but I am going to focus on the knowledge of the improvements in my body.
I really want to enjoy my cruise without feeling to self conscious to do the things that I really want to do. I want to feel more comfortable with my body and be able to fully experience the trip!
Wish me luck!
